Arise and shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you and His Glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60: 1-2
The meaning of arise in the Bible is "to get up or to stand up, to awaken"
Definition of cower is "crouch down in fear, cringe, shrink, recoil, pull back, tremble"
Verse two of Isaiah 60 I believe is a very good description of what is going on in our world today. There is so much darkness. Evil is everywhere, corruption is everywhere, human slavery, abortion etc. The devil has stolen so much from us. Slowly, slowly he has turned evil into good and turned good into evil, to the extent where we are no longer allowed to have a Biblical opinion.
Daughters of the King it is time to ARISE AND SHINE for the Glory of the Lord has risen upon you. Because of this epidemic many of you have become fearful and are cowering to the enemy. I want to say to you today God has not given you a spirit of fear, BUT of Power, love and a sound mind (2nd Timothy 1:7)
Once we awaken and arise, God promises that His Glory will be upon us, and He goes onto say that HIS GLORY will be seen on us. We have what the world desperately needs. People are longing for TRUTH. We carry His presence wherever we go, and we have the hope that the world desperately needs.
We need to be the voices of TRUTH amongst all the lies. We need to turn the tide.
